According to the Mirror, Gursharan Rattan's legal move emerged as the troubled bowler was sacked by his county Sussex last week after urinating on nightclub bouncers, while in an inebriated condition.
According to the report, Rattan's request was granted by a judge a few months after Panesar was arrested over allegations of a public flare-up with her outside a pub in 2011.
Although the England bowler was released without charges, Rattan, a pharmacist, however divorced him, saying that she could not reasonably be expected to live with him after his behaviour with her.
Former teetotal Sikh Panesar had recently admitted that he has started drinking since his divorce from his wife last year, with the report adding that Panesar's poor form and axing from the England national team has also been blamed on the bitter split.
Panesar has joined Essex on loan in a bid to revive his career, the report added.
